Dear Gail,
We call it Divestment Central.
Part of GreenFaith’s Divest & Reinvest Now! Campaign, Divestment Central is a listing of all the known faith-based initiatives on fossil fuel divestment and reinvestment in a clean energy future - worldwide.  
There are over 100 listings so far.  Help us add to the list by sending us links to information about religious institutions of any size that are considering resolutions to divest and reinvest.
Divestment Central showcases:
  • The University of Dayton, the first Catholic university to divest and Union Theological Seminary – an iconic Protestant seminary which voted to divest earlier this month.
     
  • The divestment commitments of the United Church of Christ and the Unitarian Universalist Association – the first and second national denominations to do so.
     
  • The remarkable work of Fossil Free PCUSA, which secured divestment support from regional Presbyterian groups in locations ranging from California to Boston to North Dakota, Arkansas and Florida, forcing national Presbyterian engagement of divestment within a year.
     
  • International divestment actions from Canada, England, New Zealand, and Australia – including the Council of Progressive Rabbis of Australia, Asia, and New Zealand, the first Jewish group to vote to divest from fossil fuels in the world.
Sermon and Discussion Resources
Every week, more and more faith communities get involved in the Divest & Reinvest Now! Campaign.  Over 5,000 faith communities across the US are offering sermons or discussions on the topic.   See our resources to support sermons and discussions at faith communities.
Get involved in the Divest & Reinvest Now! Campaign - now.  Organize a discussion.  Deliver a sermon.  Support a resolution.  GreenFaith will help you succeed.
In faith,


Rev. Fletcher Harper
Executive Director
